earlier, i don't think she would take on mitt romney in so far as -- i need to fix this with latinos because he doesn't actually want to change it. it's all verbal. that's the problem with their campaign right now is that they think that zingers and catchphrases can turn around what everybody knows are the actual policy of the romney campaign. >> stephanie: that's it, isn't it kerry? what hal said. the 47% wasn't a gaffe. it is their -- that's their policies really. >> yeah. i mean i think you know, this may seem like an awkward place to quote oprah but oprah -- when they tell you who they are listen. i think that is super important. >> stephanie: yeah. that's exactly right. and really in some ways, believe me a lot of conservatives are cheering those remarks and saying double down on them. yes. time to have this conversation. >> yeah. it is a little bit scary. i think it is part of what's so interesting about our show. i feel like at this point where we're so oversaturated with these political and diddals -- scandals film because there is no privacy anymore. the fact that you can't

may see. the country is more latino than it used to be. a lot of these states that are on the border like north carolina have more african-americans than it did four years ago, so all -- we don't want to get too much into the methodology of polls, but the number of total voters exist may be bigger than what the media is including in their numbers. >> bill: maine, michigan minnesota, new mexico nevada pennsylvania, that those are basically -- these are toss-up states but say look like they are going to go for obama. >> i think the president is up something like six points in nevada which is a huge deal for him. >> bill: yeah, that's six leaning republican, they only have two. arizona and north carolina. and north carolina could still go the other way. >> yeah. >> bill: in the middle toss up and this is what it really comes down to, seven colorado, florida, iowa -- where i think the president is still up -- new hampshire -- which last i saw the president is still up -- ohio which is the president is up by five at least in one poll -- virginia president within it last time. >> tim kaine

latino vote along with the women vote is the key cohort. and we have seen that. blow it sup a big story, and that's not the actual substance, but that clearly is hitting a very targeted micro group. >> jennifer: well the numbers are important, and in florida obviously this is an important issue, not just immigration but the ground game for the gop, and "the tampa bay times" tweeted today that yesterday the gop had said that they had 10 million voter contacts in florida, and said they taught 5.7 million contacts in florida. this is not just each day, this is over all. so you saw a big number yesterday, and then they sort of contracted it. it seemed like yesterday they might have been exaggerating their numbers, and changing them day-to-day. the voter contact aspect of things is the most key part of the ground game. they seem to be using the romney ryan way of talking about the deficit to do their voter contact analysis. first of all you can't have that type of a difference between the two numbers. that would suggest that there may not be quite that type of a game in place. >> jenni

of percentage uppick of black and latino students on campus. >> jennifer: i think it was a pretty engenius move to take the top 10% because you will get more diversity that way. 73 of the 90 friend of the court briefs that were filed in support of affirmative action were entities that would benefit from having a diverse, say, employee pool. tell us who some of those are. >> scholars, statisticians, scientists, military government officials, corporate officials, saying this affirmative action programs in general are good for us to train future corporate, military, or political or just general citizens in this country. it allows people to understand what it is like to work with people of different backgrounds, experiences, viewpoints, which sometimes comes through in different skin color, because what race you have ends up helping really how you see the world and how you interact with other people. and to be able to interact with people who see things differently is a huge plus. >> jennifer: in fact the military is one of the entities that filed a brief in support too, right? >> yea

once again, to be an etch-a-sketch moment. had he really wanted to woo and appeal to the latino voters which is i think necessary if you would want to stay in the campaign, he should have said this months ago. why wait until now? it looks as though, once again the weather vane flips around. he's erasing the rhetoric in the past and it looks like me-too-ism. i hate to sound skeptical. what is the approach with latino voters. can he win without him? >> i think he was dealing with the reality of what the president did on that issue. i've said all along that republicans' appeal to latino voters has to be on education. here in denver we have one of the highest dropout rates among hispanic kids in the nation. it is inexcusable. we're failing an entire generation of minority kids in colorado and around the nation. i think the democratic party is still held captive by the national education association and the colorado education association here. and education i think is the issue to get to those voters. >> eliot: i'll agree education is an issue when i talk to latino voters. and education as
